We’ve been daydreaming about spring since the first day of winter, coping with chilly commutes by picturing Aperol spritz-fueled picnics with absurd quantities of strawberries. When April finally rolls around, here we are living our best bunker lives but no complaints here whatsoever because every cloud has a silver lining. Our silver lining looks like, smells like and tastes like food. This week we are all about fresh, creamy yet light chlorophyll-packed roasted asparagus soup.
These recipe also calls for a white wine. It’s important to remember that by the time your dish is done, you won’t be able to tell a $50 bottle from a $10 one so stay away from that expensive wine isle. What actually matters is the type of wine you’re buying. There is a definite no when it comes to cooking with wine. STAY AWAY FROM COOKING WINE. Because there’s no point—you’re already getting rid of the alcohol, so why start with a product that has eliminated it for you? There are also additives in cooking wine, like salt and preservatives that mess with the natural lightness and acidity that wine brings to a dish.
The best white wines for cooking: 〰 Sauvignon Blanc 〰 White Bordeaux 〰 Pinot Grigio 〰 Sancerre 〰 Dry Vermouth Also what to do with the wine you don't cook with. Just kidding—you know what to do. 😉 Adding the home-made sunflower cream is a game changer. It's the perfect way to make this soup creamy while keeping it healthy and giving you lots of healthy fats. It’s a lovely addition to soups, porridges, dressings or sauces.
Best of all? This soup only takes 30 minutes to make.
Let’s get cookin’!!!

March is Nutrition Month!
It's also goodbye winter, hello spring kinda month (who else is excited to welcome the first day of spring on March 20?) And what a better way to celebrate this occasion with a bowl of nutritious spring soup?
Soup is definitely having a moment in our household at the moment and we're not just here for it: We're right behind it, stoking the flames.
With big flavor, bright green colour and short ingredient lists, this soup du jour is impressive enough to serve to friends but casual enough to slurp loudly when no one's around. Gather your blankets, light a candle, and queue up your favorite TV show and turn on the stove. It's soup time!!!
